This is a bustling restaurant with good food and a good location, near the Talking Stick Arena and the Klimpton Palomar hotel.

Had dinner here and it was great. Had the salmon - it was well seasoned and the accompanying items were delicious. It was also the perfect size portion - not too much or too little. I would return!

Wasn't in the mood for Meat - so took a risk and ordered the Scallops. The entire dish was excellent. My colleague had the salmon - and also said it was excellent. Service was also very good. I recommend.
